The October 16-18 FLC Samson Championship marks the return of domestic professional golf to Vietnam after an eight-month hiatus caused by Covid-19.

Organizers of the Vietnam Professional Golf Tournament (VPG Tour) under the Vietnam Golf Association (VGA) said that the FLC Samson Championship will take place next weekend at the FLC Samson Beach & Golf Resort in Thanh Hoa Province in central Vietnam.

The event, the second professional golf tournament this year, is open to professionals and golfers with handicaps below 9.1 for men and 13.1 for women. It will be played on 54 holes, but those who do not make the cut will be eliminated after the 36th hole.

The top 32 players will later compete for the top prize and the championship title.

The first prize winner will take home VND90 million (around $3,900) of the total prize pool of VND300 million (around $12,900).

According to the organizers, all players who pass the qualification rounds will receive cash prizes, while amateur players advancing to the top 32 will have their performance records counted in the World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR) instead.

The VGA had held the year’s first professional golf tournament, Vinpearl Hai Phong Championship, in February before all other VPG Tour events were postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak. It announced later that four other professional tournaments will take place in November and two in December.

Golf pros in Vietnam had an official competing platform for the first time in 2018 when the VGA established the VPG Tour.
